* Traditional research focuses on the questions YOU want to ask which may not be of interest or even relevant to your customers. We turn that around to give you a different perspective.

Why invest in Social Media?
Social Media is an increasingly important channel on which brands need to have a
presence. In a recent survey *
– 91% of marketers indicated they were employing social media for marketing
purposes with at least 67% planning on increasing their use of blogs,
Facebook, video/YouTube, Twitter and LinkedIn
– the number-one advantage of social media marketing was identified as
generating exposure for the business, indicated by 85% of all marketers,
followed by increasing traffic (63%)
– a significant percentage of participants strongly agreed that overall marketing
costs dropped when social media marketing was implemented

Why invest in Social Media Research?
Gathering insight from social media communities is rapidly becoming a viable
alternative to focus groups and depth interviews
As social media analytics evolve and improve it’s becoming easier to get reliable,
relevant quantitative feedback too
It’s an effective way to collect spontaneous attitudes and opinions of consumers in
their own words & in their own time
You won’t miss something that’s important to customers which you hadn’t thought
Feedback is fast so you will know what the ‘key topics of conversation’ are very
soon after they have been raised
Traditional research focuses on the questions YOU want to ask
which may or may not be of interest or even relevant to your consumers.
Social media research turns that around to give you a different perspective.
We focus on what your customers are already talking about – because if
they are talking about it, it must be important
How to measure your Social Media Investment
• What are your objectives – where do you want to go to?
• How do I measure success? What is the target?
• Amount of Traffic and quality
• Key brand metrics linked to your Social Media strategy
• Costs of your campaign
• Benefits of Social Media Strategy (measured by key metrics –
Traffic and Brand)/Cost
The liveinsights Process
• We search the web for references to your brand, cleaning the data as we go
• We record key metrics to measure the success of your Social Media Strategy
• We identify who is talking about your brand – we build a picture of your key influencers
• We ‘listen’ to what they are saying – what excites them, what turns them off
• We analyse their ‘language ’ - the key words & phrases that ‘make sense’ to them
• We catalogue the sites on which conversations are taking place
• Which gives you the tools and know-how to better understand and engage with your
customers through Social Media
We apply our language analysis expertise
to social media
As we move into an age where listening to customers is
becoming more important than asking questions, and
engaging in conversation is taking the place of market surveys,
knowing how to speak the customer’s language is becoming
more important than ever.
We know that customers will be much more
likely to engage with brands that they feel
are on their wavelength.
Tuning into consumer language
• Listening within a framework that gives
shape and meaning to the wealth of data
• We use NLP techniques to identify
frequently occurring ‘language patterns’ in
• Unsolicited online content is ideal for
these techniques as they work best when
customers are speaking in their natural
conversational patterns rather than
responding to specific questions.
Joining the chat
We help you to:
• Build rapport with your customers on your
own social media platforms in a way that
gets messages across AND gives
customers the feeling that they are being
listened to and valued
• Spread the word further and gather and
make sense of unsolicited feedback from
open public communities
